I have to be able to have audio after terminating jackd.  Everything
works fine when jackd is present, xine, firefox, audio apps, etc.  When
jackd is gone, no more audio.  Taking xine as an example, pavucontrol
will show the output when it plays a video and will show that the
output goes to the onboard audio.  If I choose the 1010LT card, then
xine freezes.  Envy24 utility shows nothing.  

I would like to be able to view, and hear, downloaded video clips
without jackd around.  

Why ?  Because the current bitwig has a bug in which jackd MIDI does
not work.  This translates has having sound, but no MIDI from external
controllers.  OTOH, if bitwig switches to ALSA then there's MIDI but no
sound until jackd goes away.  

The goal is to follow bitwig tutorials.

There must be a way for audio apps to be able to output sound on the
1010LT without jack...
